Amachree said peace has been restored to other parts of the state with the lifting of the curfew, except in Oyigbo Council.
According to him;
“People are going about their legitimate businesses in the state, except in Oyigbo. A lot of businesses in River State are located there. It is a melting pot for Rivers indigenes and non-indigenes. Every ethnic group in Rivers State – Ikwerre, Okrika, Ogoni, Opobo, Ijaw, Kalabari, and others do business in the local government.”
He added that;
“Oyigbo Council also has a lot of industrial establishments such as the Afam thermal station, cassava processing industry, and others. Since the curfew, business activities in the state have been slow. Now that the governor has lifted the curfew in other parts of the state, he should also relax the curfew in Oyigbo.”
Chief Mike further said;
“I plead with the governor to deploy law enforcement agents there to beef up security while allowing law-abiding citizens and businessmen to go about their lawful businesses.”
